5 Fireplaces That Spark Inspiration

Explore how designers are bringing fireplaces to the forefront of home design with these five projects

Metal Mastery

Seeking to convert a nonfunctioning wood-burning fireplace into a useable gas insert, Brynn Alden Interior Design used a custom metal treatment and concrete hearth to enhance its appearance and transform it to be the room’s focal point. The addition of birch logs adds visual texture and authenticity, while the blonde maple floors create contrast and bring the modern fireplace to light.

Black & Bold

Anchoring the main level of this Rochester home—remodeled by Interiors by J. Curry and Marquee Construction—a floor-to-ceiling fireplace brings a bold touch to a bright and clean space. The fireplace, installed with the help of Haley Comfort Systems, boasts quartz stone, walnut wood, and steel, which come together to achieve an effortless, elegant look. Complete with intricate details, including custom steel fabrication and mitered corners, the fireplace is a true representation of devoted craftsmanship.

Modern Mediterranean

In departure from traditional fireplace designs, this Hartman Homes creation brings warmth to a main-level sunroom. Flanking the television, the HeliFire 360 gas fireplaces are uniquely built into stone columns, which capture the walnut shiplap and cabinetry. With artistry at the forefront of the design, the vertical fireplaces bring an elevated ambience to the space.

Farmhouse Contemporary

From the moment you step in the doors of this custom home by TEA2 Architects and Über Built, the fireplace guides visitors with its cohesive, connected design. Crafted from Kasota stone—which was fleuri-cut to achieve a swirling effect—the fireplace itself becomes a work of art.

Old-World Grandeur

This French country beach home by Blue Pencil Collective and Rossow Construction boasts a majestic 30-foot-high stone fireplace, adorned with natural fieldstone and a custom-designed, cast limestone surround. Measuring 10 feet wide by 8 feet high, this castle-like ensemble makes for a stately addition to the great room.
